What our customers have to say!

"We bought Chatham Blue Cod from Chatham Island Foods for the first time. I was worried about the fish being frozen as I don’t usually buy frozen meat or fish, but I needn’t have worried. Because it’s snap frozen, it tasted just like fresh. Amazing! I dusted the fillets in cornflour, and pan fried them in a neutral oil (Rice Brand or Canola) and served with a melted butter/garlic/fresh chives, dill and Sweet Basil sauce. I panfried some capers and scattered them on top. It was stunning! Thanks to Delwyn and the team for making our lock down still a gourmet experience!"
